BOULDER, Colo. -- Arielle Roberson scored 17 points and Jen Reese added 16 and No. 11 Colorado, with four players in double figures, rolled to a 79-56 win over Illinois Saturday night.

Reese, who hit 7 of 9 shots, including both of her 3-pointers, came off the bench, which gave Colorado (8-0) a decided advantage since the Illini (5-5) got just one point for their reserves.

Roberson, the reigning Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, had 10 rebounds as Colorado piled up a 51-30 advantage on the glass. Guard Brittany Wilson had 13 defensive rebounds and also had eight assists. Rachel Hargis contributed 12 points and Jasmine Sborov had 10.

Jacqui Grant had 20 points for Illinois with Amber Moore adding 16 and Ivory Crawford 12. Moore opened the game with back-to-back 3s to give the Illini a 6-2 lead but Colorado broke from a 13-13 tie with seven straight points and never trailed.
